We unpick the latest figures from China: growth down, exports down. With some of the worst data since the financial crisis began, how concerned should we be about China? And is the transition to a consumer economy happening fast enough? Our chief business correspondent, Linda Yeuh, gives her verdict. Also in the programme, we hear a damning report from the University of Greenwich about water privatisations worldwide. And we hear from Jennifer Pak, our correspondent in Malaysia, about the country's growing intolerance towards its large immigrant labour force.
